Book Cover: DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE
Albert Whitman & Company
Descendant of the Crane follows Princess Hesina as she’s thrown into a position of power following the murder of her father, the King of Yan. Her kingdom is unstable, but she’s determined to find her father’s killer and is willing to commit treason to do so.
“The cover carries a mysterious vibe that comes from the complex relationship between the crane/father and the daughter. We don’t know the dangers hidden in the silence, nor the stories lain in the past. The concept of the cover is to help evoke this beautiful world of fantasy.” -- Artist, Feifei Ruan
"Feifei’s line work is as intricate as the arcs of my plot, and her pieces are comprised of layers that reveal something new with each glance... Chinese culture is rich in symbolism, and the meanings behind these objects are just as important, if not more. Lotus flowers must first grow out of the mud before they can bloom; they symbolize perfection and purity of heart." -- Author, Joan He
